Culture Fest

This is a picture of Jack in his little costume at Culture Fest, his Montessori classroom's celebration of Europe. He is posing in front of a "quilt" he helped make. He and the other kindergarten kids sang some European folk songs and did a Greek dance. It was so incredibly cute! The kids were so proud. Afterward, we had a "pitch-in" dinner (for you East coast folks, that's Midwestern for "pot luck") of European dishes. It was surprisingly very good.

Jack isn't dressed as anything really. I think that it was supposed to be a sort of Greek get-up for a Greek dance the kids did. The boys all wore what Jack did and the girls wore skirts and kerchiefs.
I don't get the George reference...help me out on that one.

It's from an episode of Bugs Bunny, called "Ambominable Snowrabbit", where an abominable snowman has Daffy Duck in his hand and lovingly pets him and says "I'll hug him and squeeze him and call him george." :) I tried to find a clip on the web, with no joy. You can buy if if interested at amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Bugs-Bunny-Big-Top/dp/B00000JQAI

One question and one comment:

1) Did you make homemade pierogies for the potluck?

2) Jack looks just like you. You would have made a really cute boy!
